          I mean, to nominte Peter O'Toole just because his name is Peter O'toole is stupid. From all accounts I've heard his performance in Venus is good ... but not at all award worthy.
          The only way to really know is to actually see the films yourself, then the feeling of an Academy Award-worthy performance will seem justified.

          Having seen all of the films nominated above (save for 'Letters from Iwo Jima' which I'll do this week) I'd say its a near perfect, well-rounded list.
          My pick would remain...

            I agree. I think Sacha Baron Cohen for Borat would've been an edgier (and probably more deserving) choice.

            That Dreamgirls didn't get a Best Picture nod was stunning. Even more telling, three of its eight nominations were for Best Song and it was shut out of the directing and writing categories. For all its critical accolades, Dreamgirls was clearly not a movie the Academy took seriously.

            This may be one of the most anticlimactic Academy Awards ever. Does anyone think Forest Whitaker, Helen Mirren, Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Hudson are NOT going to win the acting awards? The only major race that might be interesting is Best Picture. With Dreamgirls out of the running, Babel becomes the clear favorite, but I'm rooting for The Departed. Even if it doesn't win for picture, please, please, PLEASE will the Academy finally give Martin Scorsese a Best Director Oscar? This is his best work in years and he got career performances out of Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Wahlberg.

            In the Animated Feature category, I don't think Cars is a lock. As visually stunning as it was, it was overlong and emotionally distant. Happy Feet was more of a crowd pleaser and will probably win.

            We'll all find out on February 25th.

                I was surprised Over the Hedge wasn't nominated too. It was fun, entertaining and had a good heart.

                MAKE UP: Why not Pirates? Jack is has increase profitability of
                Maybeline 643%! Just because it's CGI make up, doesn't make
                it any less. Certainly Davey Jones deserves the Oscar. And Tia
                Dalma is certainly a new trend setter in make up stylings!
                No matter how good it looks, you can't classify CGI effects as makeup. That's one of the reasons why POTC was nominated for Visual Effects and will likely win. My choice for Makeup would be Pan's Labryinth. I haven't seen the film yet, but the overall look of it is amazing and the makeup effects are impressivie.

                  Nope. My neighbor (who loves musicals btw) and her boyfriend walked out of it. They hated it. I personally have not interest in seing it.

                  However, my guess is that it was probably real close and it just didn't get enough votes to be in the top 5.

                    The Prestige scored two minor nominations too,

                    but Disney's big triumph of course is

                    The Queen, from the "new" Miramax, got 6 nominations including Best Picture.
